Former President Bartlet chews Obama a new one

The ever-rocking Maureen Dowd* and West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin dreamed up a meeting between West Wing's President Bartlet and Obama.
BARACK OBAMA knocks on the front door of a 300-year-old New Hampshire farmhouse while his Secret Service detail waits in the driveway. The door opens and OBAMA is standing face to face with former President JED BARTLET.

BARTLET Senator.

OBAMA Mr. President.

BARTLET You seem startled.

OBAMA I didn’t expect you to answer the door yourself.

BARTLET I didn’t expect you to be getting beat by John McCain and a LancĂ´me rep who thinks “The Flintstones” was based on a true story, so let’s call it even.

OBAMA Yes, sir.

BARTLET Come on in.

BARTLET leads OBAMA into his study.

*AUTHORS NOTE: I find Ms. Dowd mysteriously alluring and sexy, and because of this (and becuase she's funny and intelligent) I have purchased one of her books and read her articles. It could be argued the same sales techniques are in play with men supporting Sarah Palin. So I'm a guy. Sue me. At least I don't want to elect her VP.
